08/26/2023 - The bird succumbed to injuries and was humanely euthanized.
Karla called us stating she had picked up a hawk that she found alongside the road north of Berne, IN. I contacted her and we agreed to meet in Decatur, IN. Upon arrival, I found that she had a juvenile red-tailed hawk and it was very quiet and lethargic. I could see no visible injuries or blood on the bird and since it was found on the side of the road, we can only assume that it was hit by a car. I got it loaded up and headed back to Huntertown, IN where it was triaged and found to be very emaciated and blind, likely from head trauma.
